    Michael is an amazing "healer". I have been able to observe his work over the years with athletes and injuries in all age groups. my most recent personal issue was a complete rupture of my hamstring muscles off of the posterior pelvis playing "A" league hockey at age 55. I am a long ago retired pro and a practicing surgeon. My orthopedic colleagues recommended surgery and I was advised I might not regain normal function. I turned to Michael. RRIP!. Rest, Recovery, Integration Progression. We started with Ice, then Ice and heat with the tiniest of reactivation movements and nerve "reawakening". Ultimately over 4-6 months with intensive pool therapy (deep water movement, walking then running), guess what!! complete recovery. No more hockey for me but plenty of cycling, jogging, yardwork etc etc with no problems. He has helped my family and friends in similar fashion. give him a call!

    Coach Holland began training me and handling my nutrition my senior year of college while I was attempting to become a professional football player. Before my pro day, he was able to increase my weight to 15 pounds of sold muscle. My 225 rep test went from 15 to 22 times for pro day. I was able to run a 4.5 in my 40 second dash. My broad jump was 10’ 10” and vertical jump was 40 inches. It was a lot of rigorous work, but the results were great. Not only just, but the recovery aspect is something I carry into my daily life. He has taught me mental, physical and spiritual recovery techniques that enhances my quality of life.
